In this webinar, we will explore what purpose might look like for you and how it can impact your role in teaching and learning. Naomi Ward, ICF accredited coach and facilitator, will discuss what purpose means to educators, how it can enable you to increase your capacity, discover and how it can transform your relationship to the barriers that get in your way.

Within your role in education, we will explore:

  • What is purpose?
  • What will the impact be on you if you choose to live purposefully?
  • When you have found purpose, how can you use it as a resource?
  • What if you doubt your ability to live a life of purpose?
  • How do you find and define your purpose in education?
